All Saints Day in Warsaw

In Poland, it’s a tradition to visit the graves and ligth candles as a symbol of remembering the dead on All Soul’s Day,which falls on 1st November. You may think it’s creepy, but I think there’s something beautiful and mystical about wandering around the cemetery as the soft candle lights are glistering in the night 🙂

I took the photos at Powązki Cemetery, Warsaw’s most famous, and probably oldest, cemetery.

“What is life? Oh, it’s just a moment.”
